Add Remove Programs

  jellyhead 11:28 01 Mar 2008

Want to remove a couple of redundant programs that do not have there own uninstall, went to control panel then add remove programs but they are not listed. How can I get rid of them please.
Many thanks in advance.

ccleaner. This has an uninstall facility. Worth a try if the progs are buggin u.

if you are ok in your registry you can look them up in there and delete anything you find regarding progs,when you have done that click on edit and select find and put your items in the box and click ok,then press F3 and see if any traces appear and right click and press delete,do that until the ok box appears,only try this if you are happy in the registry,

Just a rider to De Nada's suggestion. If you decide to use the registry method "Back it up first"
